I would like to buy a half fare travel card for my 16 year old

She is 17 in October
So will I need to buy a full price half fare card?

Hello @KarenJobson

You can buy the half fare card for 16-year-olds from the 16th birthday until one day before the 17th birthday and it will be valid vor one year.

Here you'll find all the information:


Kind regards, KerstinI





So for more clarification: I can buy the pass for my 16-yr old children and still USE it when they've just become 17? And this is still good-to-use for 1 year, while they are 17 yrs old? Thanks in advance.
